I am the proud parent of Mikel Falvey who is a 29 year old young man with Down Syndrome and autism. Mikel receives support for his living and day program from REACH. I was a service coordinator and Quality Assurance staff at Westside Regional Center for 19 years. Prior to working at WRC I was the founding co-director of Casa Allegra, a supported living and group home agency in the San Francisco Bay Area for 20 years. I enjoy time with family and friends. I bring my personal and professional perspective to the REACH board.
